3.0 out of 5 stars Sigh, not what I had hoped for from Beadwork Magazine. 11 Dec 2003
By Dari B. Wayne - Published on
I was hoping for something great from Beadwork (the magazine) and this was not it. Lots of pictures and examples all with instructions should have made up for my disappointment, however, it didn't. The examples of beadwork necklaces are mediorce at best and can be found in nearly every book available on the market today. Beadwork Magazine has had amazing bead artists in their mag and I was hoping those were to be the pieces with instructions offered. The size and cut of the book is not usable either. I understand that publishers like to experiement with different sizes and shapes to capture buyers attention, but as a practical use, it has none. The pages do not lay flat in spite of this being touted in their advertisment. The long, skinny length of this does not allow for ease in following directions either. I have watched the bead industry soar these past 5-7 years and this book does not reflect this creative direction. Perhaps I am a bit jaded as I have been beading for so long and have seen what is out there, still, an offering from Beadwork Magazine should have had more splash and usable pizazz. This may be a strong springboard into beading for the beginning beader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Necklaces 25 Jan 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The necklaces in this book are beautiful. I can't wait to try them. I think, though, that if you are a beginner this isn't a good book to start with - you should have some beading experience unless you are good at following written directions without diagrams for each step. Certainly worth buying if you have some experience - like opening a present with each page!

3.0 out of 5 stars Best to get Beadwork Creates Jewelry: 40 designs 10 Feb 2009
By Beading by the Lake - Published on
I think that is the title. It takes the best designs from this necklace book, as well as the three Beadwork Creates books: Bracelets, Rings, and Earrings.

Of the four books culled for Beadwork Creates Jewelry, this necklaces book is my favorite. There are more than a few necklaces in this book though, that you wonder how in the world they were picked. Some are almost laughably simple, and one or two are just painfully out of style.

My biggest complaint with the book is that you don't get to see a picture of all of the necklace on some of the more complicated projects. Even with several pictures of each necklace, there are some whose parts you just have to imagine, as they are not shown. Likewise, some directions are vague, as though the designer only grudgingly allowed their work in the book, but wanted to make sure their design could not be copied, or even successfully sort-of reproduced. When they are that secretive, please just leave their work out of a project book

Another in the series put together by Jean Campbell with some excellent new designs, and reworked old ones. Everyones taste is different, with most of the patterns suitable for day or night.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beadwork Creates 5 April 2008
By M. J. Grunden - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book because I had the others in the series and wanted to add to it. Being an avid beader these books are great for ideas and learning how to do new techniques. I am anxiously looking forward to creating some of the projects in the book. I recommend this for anyone who has an interest in more than simple beading.
